Man, we tried this costume twice, and i wasn’t even sure if i’d run these pics. While there’s marked improvement in the second set (to be posted soon), none of us were enthusiastic with the results. Especially compared to the other stuff currently being edited…but then DC Direct just announced the upcoming action figure of Wonder Woman as a Star Sapphire, and we figured what the hell. Commemorating her 5 minutes in the Violet Lantern Corps at the end of the Green Lantern centric company-wide crossover event, the figure is due November 3rd in wave 6 of their Blackest Night series.
So here’s the first shot at Violet Lantern Corps Wonder Woman…enjoy, i guess.
Here’s the promo pic of the new figure. I take some solace from the fact that it really doesn’t look that good, either. Maybe it’s just a tough costume to pull off?
More after the jump.
Showed these to a few people, and the responses read like the Repo Men reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. “What’s with the Burger King crown?” Uhh, i guess my fabrication and molding department was off that day. Or it’s a free site, and we have no budget. One of those. “The pics are so grainy.” Yeah, i noticed. Shooting indoors with a new camera (Sony cyber-shot TX1…it’s actually a pretty great camera) and insufficient light. Nobody’s pretending to be a professional photographer here, and i guess mistakes happen.
I do feel compelled to note that Repo Men is, in all actuality, fiercely brilliant and the best fucking movie of the year to date. Most of those RT reviewers have their heads firmly entrenched in their bums…in this case, though, the reviews are right. The pictures do suck.
I do have to say the sculpt on the as yet unreleased Heroclix piece of Diana in the Violet Lantern Corps is actually pretty spectacular. Especially since it’s only like an inch high, and is better painted than most Hasbro action figures.
